Simonton Asure Windows Reviews

Like many entry-level options, Simonton Asure windows use a narrower frame and lacks many of the bells and whistles that often come standard on the upgraded models. The Asure is one of our selections for the top cheap window replacements on the market. The Simonton Asure Series took over for the Simonton 5050 window back in the spring of 2012.

The Simonton Asure is a thinner, more narrow version of some of the upgraded Simonton window models. The result is more viewing area and glass, however the downside is fairly mediocre energy efficiency. The Asure model uses the same sash as was on the 5050, however the actual frame is nicer looking.

The Asure comes in either white or tan (on both the interior and exterior) can be ordered as a double hung, 2 lite slider, picture window or in a number of geometric shapes.

Simonton Asure Ratings

The Asure double hung that measures 46"W x 84" high will have an air infiltration of 0.20 scfm/ft. With the ProSolar low-e glass, argon fills and the Intercept spacer, consumers can expect the Assure to get a .33 U-factor, 3.03 R-value, .40 VT and .24 SHGC.

These performance numbers are about what homeowners should expect from an entry level vinyl window in this price range. They are considered okay at best.

Simonton Asure Warranty

The Asure model includes a double lifetime limited warranty on the mainframe (and all vinyl materials), components, screens and hardware. The double lifetime means that if you were to sell your home, the next buyer gets the warranty for their lifetime as well (homeowners must notify the company in writing of the transfer). This warranty is identical to the Simonton 5300 Reflections window.

The glass is covered for 20 years, although the portion covered by the company is at a prorated amount. The warranty does not cover glass breakage, laminated glass, interior laminates or factory applied coatings. As with all warranties, there are a litany of limitations and exclusions that buyers shoud read prior to purchase.

Mid Range Simonton Windows

I had a window guy come out for an estimate. We have 23 windows. He said they use Simonton. I told him I was after the mid grade level. He wrote up an estimate for the "Asure" model. It looks to me that the Assure is the entry level, not the mid grade. Am I correct? If so, what is the mid grade window?

Steve, you are correct that the Asure window is more of an entry level vinyl window than a mid grade. Simonton makes lots of windows so I'm going to give you some different models. Under the Reflections line, the 5300 series is the mid range model. On the East Coast, this is often called the Prism Gold model - same window.

The company makes an Impressions model that is a bit higher end but the 9800 model is a very good window. Through Home Depot, the company sells two models that I feel are pretty much middle of the road and this includes the VantagePointe and the Daylight Max. I think the VantagePoint might be a bit better in terms of performance than the Daylight, which uses a thinner frame.

Hopefully, I've given you enough models to go back to the rep and ask whether he carries any of these lines or models. Good luck!

Simonton Asure Window vs. Alside Mezzo

I am looking at the Simonton Asure and Alside Mezzo. What are the concerns/issues between the two and is one better than the other.

Wayne, these windows are probably about equal in terms of quality and performance, although I think I'd give the nod to the Alside Mezzo.

Neither one of these windows is one that would top my list of vinyl windows however. Instead, I would go with the mid range window from one of these brands; Okna, Soft-Lite, Sunrise, Polaris…

I believe all of these brands should be available where you live. At least get bids from 2 companies who sell these brands and see how the prices compare. They are going to be much better than either the Asure or the Mezzo and quite possible not THAT much more.
